Women shot during Ivory Coast Ouattara march

Security forces in Ivory Coast have shot dead at least six women marching in support of Alassane Ouattara in the main city of Abidjan, witnesses say.

The women were demanding Laurent Gbagbo hand the presidency over to the recognised election winner.

Mr Ouattara is recognised by the UN as the winner of November's election, but Laurent Gbagbo has refused to concede power.

John James reports.
